I got that line from a wonderful speaker I heard recently named Ann Bennett. I love it because it blows up the default expectation so many of us have that we have to get everything “straightened out” before we can tell our story, or our truth. Trust me, experts don’t have flawless lives. It’s when we can embrace the mess that we level up in life.
My sister sent me this video, which I think perfectly describes this embracing the mess concept. It’s a talk by author Kelly Corrigan on motherhood. Enjoy.
On the First Monday of every month I do a free conference call, discussing different aspects of self-care. For February, I’ll be discussing essential oils. (I have an advanced certification in aromatherapy.) Ever wondered what the deal is with them? How to incorporate them into your life? Join me and let’s talk!

More juicy good stuff to come on this site soon, I promise. I’ve just been adjusting to life on the road and tending to … other things.
So much exciting stuff going on here at The Center of the Known Universe (e.g, wherever I am.): We left on Jan 1st for our Airstream adventure. I’m learning how to work/live on the road.
